Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After the Bombs is a coming of age story that holds a mirror up to the modern history of Guatemala--a funhouse mirror of richly inventive and farcical black comedy which provides a better description of life in that country than any history book ever could. It opens with the bombing of Guatemala City in 1954 when the hero, Max, is a small child. In a swiftly moving narrative, Max journeys twoard adulthood, searching for his identitty, for his father, and along the way, for the real Guatemala and the possibility of a society founded on human decency, after the bombs.

Synopsis:

In the years that follow the bombing of Guatemala City in 1954, young Max grows into manhood as he searches for his identity, his father, and his place in the struggles of his country.
